Rio 2016 Olympics: Jamaica’s Usain Bolt Playfully Through To Men’s 200m Finals

The ‘big man’ Usain Bolt and Andre De Grasse of Canada, looked easy and playful in their semi final and got through to the next round with ease. Nickel Ashmeade was not so fortunate, and placed fourth in his event, at the Rio 2016 Olympics. Yohan Blake also missed out on reaching to the finals.
